What is TEDxCalcutta?

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience.

Our event is call TEDxCalcutta, where x=independently organized TED event. At our TEDxCalcutta event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.

What are we trying to do?

While organizing TEDxCalcutta our primary objective is to find the smartest of minds that we can find in Calcutta and get them under one roof for a daylong event, because we believe that when you get the smartest of minds together in an environment where they can connect, good things happen.
